Reverse Lights not working

Hey everybody,

I've noticed that my backup lights are no longer working. I don't know how long they've been like this. My park/brake/turn signals are all ok. I haven't done the obivious yet and check the bulbs because I cannot see them both burning at the same time. Any ideas of what to check for. There is a switch somewhere isn't there.. I've got a manual transmission. Not trying to be lazy by not checking, it's just that its raining out and I don't feel like getting wet today . I'll look at it tommorow so any ideas would be great.

Thanks.

No - there's no separate / dedicated fuse for the reverse lamps on a 2003 Tacoma.

The backup lights are powered off the 10A Gauge fuse.

It's located in the junction / fuse box behind your lower left dash.

If this fuse was bad would there be any other lights not working?

There'd be a lot of things not working right - including your cluster, the ABS controller, key reminder / seatbelt warning, etc., etc., etc.....
